Well, given that the only committer on record in that Git tree is
myself I guess the status is: I'm working on it alone and things
are going at the speed I can afford (remember: my day job has
nothing to do with multimedia, and since I don't have DVCPRO-HD
equipment I don't even have a personal itch to scratch).
Help is *always* welcome. Be careful though, the end goal of the 
project is to integrate the changes back into the FFmpeg. And in 
order to do that they have to be really clean.

Not really. I'm about to update the Git tree this weekend and that
might (or might not) solve your problem.

Please make your samples available somewhere on the web. I'm compiling
a small collection of those to be used for testing.
